This project is named after a character in a Soviet sci-fi classic "Andromeda" by Ivan Yefremov, therefore it just have no right to be bad :) In all seriousness, it's a very unique kind of "cosmic" instrumental doom metal, not too heavy but very atmospheric. A kind of music I can listen to for hours non-stop without getting tired of it.

Erg Noor is (was? unfortunately, there are no news from EG since 2009...) a self-defined "misanthropic doom metal" one-man band started in 2004 by someone who was apparently born in our post-Soviet space but relocated to Germany during the 1990s (or maybe early 2000s) along with many other Spätaussiedler.

I managed to find some photos of this guy which appear to be from 2011 (maybe a bit earlier), but that's pretty much all:
